The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has released the following salary figures for the MMA World Series of Fighting 3: Fitch vs Burkman 2, held Friday, June 14, 2013, at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The main card aired live on the NBC Sports Network.
These salary amounts do not include any individual fighter endorsement earnings for this event, nor do they include any undisclosed bonuses. Fighters pay out of pocket for training, licensing fees and related expenses. Fighters spend months training in preparation for these fights, so they are being paid for their work already completed in the gym, as well as their performance on fight night.
Josh Burkman was the top earner of the night with his $32,000 payout.
